Room: Small and hot if windows closed, which they had to be to keep out the road noise. Front desk: Unhelpful and inattentive. Restaurant: We ate in the bar: food expensive and very poorly cooked. We ordered 2 steaks medium-rare. They were overcooked and fairly tasteless - at around £20 each this was not good value! Breakfast: ordered bacon and... More

We booked into the Bear as we were going to see Giffords Circus which was on just up the road on the common. (Will mention the circus at the end of the review). This was booked online some months ago following checking out reviews. We turned up at 12md as the circus performance was starting at one o'clock. The receptionist... More

Stayed one night at the Bear, unfortunately there was a wedding on, great for them not great for me - the party went on until the early hours of the morning and given the old style building sound really travels. It's a lovely building and were the hotel not overtaken by the wedding I think I would have had a... More

We enjoyed a very relaxed yet stylish Sunday lunch at the Bear last Sunday. The Roasts were superb, nice quality and perfectly cooked produce with an expansive wine list and very attentive service. Following this we enjoy relaxed tea in one of their cosy snug lounges. Highly recommend, we will be back.

Comfortable rooms, good food, plenty parking, pleasant staff, free wifi and views to die for from the 3rd floor ! What more could you wish for ! We had room 35 which had a 5 foot bed and en suite shower / bath. It was a bit of a climb but we had views from two sides of the room.... More

Biggish busy hotel, small room but perfect in every detail and a very comfy bed! The bar was full of life and conversation but got served by attentive staff. There are beautiful outside spaces in summer and because the hotel is situated in the middle of Rodborough Common, which continues to be one of the few places in England freely... More

Back to the Bear for the third time for my wife's birthday. Went on a package. Arrived Friday afternoon, had a fine dining meal for dinner. Food was cooked really well and looked beautiful and tasted gorgeous. Unfortunately I am not into real fine dining, because I don't like pink food, a bit of a philistine but if you like... More

We stayed one night during a drive around the Cotswolds. We were two friends and booked a twin but as the rooms were quite small upon arrival we booked a second room. The hotel is located on Rodborough Common so awesome to go walking along the area with amazing views. Breakfast was great too and included in the price. Good... More

Stayed here for a night on work, and found the place most enchanting and full of character. I managed to sleep in a room in the main building on the 3rd floor, open windows, beautiful views and peaceful. The team working here are most friendly, whilst some were still learning, everyone was polite and happy. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. 'Award... More
